Proposal: How A Bill Becomes A Law

Timed out and failed, 4 votes to 5. Josh

Throughout the Dynastic ruleset, change all instances of the word “Proposal” to “Bill”.

Add the following as a subrule to the rule Victory, called Bills:

A Proposal is a Bill if any of the following are true:

* It only specifies changes to the dynastic ruleset
* It only changes a non-ruleset part of the gamestate
* It only proposes to make a new Active Special Case rule, or activate an inactive Special Case rule

A non-proposal Votable Matter can never be a Bill.

If Proposal: Self Consistency was enacted, add the following to the Mandate List; otherwise as it to the list in the rule The Veto List: “It uses the term Proposal in a context that implies it should be referring to a Bill.”

Seems like a bad idea to have core and appendix rule changes tied up in dynastic tactical gameplay.

Is “It uses the term Proposal in a context that implies it should be referring to a Bill.” right? This would mean every bill needs to use the term proposal in a context that implies it should be referring to a Bill.

I’m very concerned that this will require all proposals to annoyingly find ways to use the term “proposal” in a context that implies it should be referring to a bill so I guess I’m gonna have to take the empathy hit on this one

I’m considering vetoing this under my “prevent scams reaching the ruleset” policy – I don’t think it was intended as a scam, but sufficiently many players (including me) have misread it that it’s acting like one in practice – but I’ll wait for more opinions on that.
